The event kicked off with the lunch..Food was great and all the boys and girls were really disciplined to queue for the food served by our dedicated G&S members. After an hour, we took a quick tour around the home and was briefed by the caretaker, Ms.Lesley on the home condition and she shared some precious experiences in bringing up these kids. From there, we were really appreciate what they have done and sacrifice in upbringing these kids for the past 10 years.

Last session was the enjoyable part, the game session. It was fully conducted by the kids and G&S members, although much older than rest of them, took part and had a wonderful and unforgettable session with them. There are no PS2, computer games or even board games, but the simple games they thought of is good enough to make everyone had a great evening together..In short, that's the best moment when you watch the childrens' laughter and happiness during the get-together session....Of course, they enjoyed our companies too..

This is their sleeping lucky we are
